I would like to request the inclusion of the reference implementation of the argon2 password hashing algorithm and building php with the relevant switch:
Code:
--with-password-argon2=DIR           Include Argon2 support in password_*. DIR is the Argon2 shared library path]
Links:
Also PHP 7.2.14 is out.

This one would be useful for a number of projects using php (personally i would use that with this one CodeIgniter-Ion-Auth)

Thanks

Is it possible that hostapd be added to Slackware? Slackware already ships bind, dnsmasq, and dhcpd. If not, what is the reason why it is not included? hostapd is the only software missing from Slackware that prevents it from being used as a fully featured router. I maintain hostapd on SBo for a few months now because I have several home brew routers and repeaters here at home. It works great and it is very stable.

Here is the hostapd homepage: https://w1.fi/hostapd/

Pat, please consider these flags for C and C++ program:
Code:
    -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2         glibc hardening

    -Wp,-D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS   glibc++ hardening

    -fstack-protector-strong    stack smash protection

    -fstack-clash-protection    stack clash protection

    -fPIE -pie                  better ASLR protection

    -Wl,-z,noexecstack          don't allow code on stack

    -Wl,-z,relro                ELF hardening

    -Wl,-z,now                  ELF hardening
With this flags, every distribution is safer.
Many distributions use them (or are planning to start using them) such as Fedora, RHEL, OpenSUSE, Arch Linux...

Ironically, in the case of 2017's stack-clash vulnerability PIE actually made things more vulnerable by moving the victim memory ranges closer to the bottom of the stack. Non of these flags are a silver-bullet and they usually come at a performance cost, so you don't get the hardening for free.

IMO "use these everywhere because... security!" isn't sufficient argument.

Yes, I imagine decent cases could be made for various combinations of flags and packages (some might even be good defaults), but this should require knowledge of the actual effects, as opposed to an approach that simply tries to add as many security flags as possible.

could someone fix the configuration in midnight commander ?
mc still thinks open office is installed by default
and add sand box opening of squash file systems like it dose for tar.gz files

could this http://freaknet.org/alpt/Emerde/ be considered for placement in /testing ?

This is probably the place:

Now that the move is on to higher level languages, could we please have one (or a few) python modules packages? Slackware is no longer concerned with constricted disk space, with valid reason. But every python module required means
  1. Search for slackbuild & download
  2. Download source
  3. compile & install

Here's a typical list for invesalius (expressed in Ubuntu/Mint package names)
Quote:
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 11~),
python-all-dev,
cython,
dh-python,
python-numpy
Depends: ${pythonepends},
${miscepends},
python-numpy,
python-scipy,
python-skimage,
python-wxgtk4.0,
python-pil,
python-gdcm,
python-vtkgdcm,
python-vtk6,
python-nibabel,
python-serial,
python-psutil,
python-configparser,
python-concurrent.futures
Freecad, installed in Mint, required 25 extra packages. That's a major PITA in Slackware. It would be insane to install Freecad in today's Slackware. Why not bundle them? Then if someone used a crazy module or two, there's be a simple job grasbbing the one or two extra.

That's a little over the top, don't you think? It's not insane to install FreeCAD in Slackware; in fact, it's very easy if you use sbopkg, sbotools, sboui, slackrepo, etc. Python packages, except for the ones that actually need to be compiled, like numpy, typically install in a matter of seconds.

That said, I wouldn't be against having things like numpy and matplotlib added, since it seems like a lot of things use them (and I personally use them daily), but I don't mind getting them from SBo either.

Slackware is too still concerned with constricted disk space. It still needs to fit on one DVD. At least, if DVDs were being discontinued I haven't heard the news...

And for installing Python modules, I just do:

Code:
pip3 install <modulename> --user
Maybe not the best from a sysadmin purity standpoint, but it works for me. I do the same for apps distributed via npm (after setting the npm install prefix to ~/.local).

MATÉ, please.

If I understand well the most recent blog post from Eric, Pat didn't decide (yet?) to include KDE Plasma 5 in Slackware 15.

If that doesn't change I suggest (it doesn't cost anything to suggest, right?) to ship MATÉ in Slackware 15. Rationale:
  • It is is easy to build.
  • It can have as many bells and whistles as you want, if the compiz WM is also shipped.
  • It is not very heavy.
  • It is actively maintained.
  • It is based on GTK+3
  • It comes with a very useful integrated help (provided that Yelp be also shipped).
  • It is the most accessible desktop for visually impaired users.
  • It benefits of many software managed under the Gnome umbrella, but doesn't need all the Gnome infrastructure.
  • It is shipped in Slint and I use it almost exclusively.
PS If it is not shipped in Slackware 15, I hope that Eric will continue to maintain KDE Plasma 5, as many Slackware users like it.
